I, Carrion (Icarian)

If the wind turns
If I hit a squall
Allow the ground to find its brutal way to me
I feel lighter than I have in so much time

I've crossed the borderline of weightless
One deep breath out from the sky
I've reached a rarer height now
That I can confirm

All our weight is just a burden
Offered to us by the world
And though I burn
How could I fall?

When I am lifted by every word you say to me
If anything could fall at all
It's the world that falls away from me
You have me floating like a feather on the sea

While you're as heavy as the world
That you hold your hands beneath
Once I had wondered
What was holding up the ground

I can see that all along, love
It was you all the way down
Leave it now
I am sky-bound

If you need to, darling
Lean your weight to me
We'll float away
But if we fall, I only pray

Don't fall away from me
I do not have wings, love
I never will
Soaring over a world you are carrying

If these heights should bring my fall
Let me be your own
Icarian carrion
If the wind turns

If I hit a squall
Allow the ground to find its brutal way to me
If I should fall on that day
I only pray

Don't fall away from me
